Practice Portal Adds Cultural Competence and Bilingual Service Delivery Guidance
Two new professional issues topics on the ASHA Practice Portal—cultural competence and bilingual service delivery—will provide audiologists and speech-language pathologists with guidance, resources and references to address the unique characteristics and cultural and linguistic backgrounds of the individuals and families they serve.
The cultural competence page lists resources that help determine the difference between cultural competence and stereotyping, navigate ethical considerations, and understand cultural dimensions and how they affect service provision.
The bilingual service delivery page offers information on the processes and phenomena of second-language acquisition, determining whether a client has a language difference or a disorder, and specific assessment and treatment considerations for bilingual patients.
ASHA’s online Practice Portal (www.asha.org/practice-portal) is designed to help clinicians translate evidence and expert opinion into practice. Other professional topics address audiology assistants, speech-language pathology assistants, caseload/workload, telepractice and unbundling hearing aid sales. Clinical topics available are aphasia, pediatric dysphagia, permanent childhood hearing loss, social communication disorders and superior canal dehiscence. More clinical and professional issues topic pages will be added as they are developed.Image Not Available
